This might sound very straight forward but there is a lot that goes into this.  First you will pick a
style of stone.  If there will be more than one individual listed on the stone you may want to pick a
larger size stone.  You will also need to pick the color and decide if a special design is right for
you.  Some colors and designs take longer to order then others, so be sure to ask if time is an
Once you have chosen the stone it is time to decide what you want to go on the stone.  You can
look through our design layout samples.  If you have particular organizational symbols that you
would like to include, we can do that.  If you want a picture that you don't see - don't be afraid to
ask!  We have many designs that are not shown and we would be glad to put one together to
accommodate you.  You can choose a full scene or some simple pictures.  If you would like to
have an epitaph on the stone, this is the time for that as well.  You might want to add
photographs or a laser engraving.
A completed, signed contract and payment is required before we will order the stone or begin
design work.  We do require a down payment of at least half the total price.
We will lay out a design on the computer.  Once the design is complete, we will notify you so that
you can come by to discuss the design or have the design mailed to you (if you live out of town).  
You will need to approve the design before we can continue with the engraving of the memorial.
After you have approved the design we will engrave the memorial and work on setting it as soon
as we can (usually within a couple of weeks weather permitting).
The remaining balance is due once the memorial has been set.
